THE fight against HS2 has a new supporter — one of the Chuckle Brothers.
Comic Barry Chuckle has written to organisers of the Bramley protest march on Saturday (Oct 8).
Sandra Haith, of Stop HS2 Bramley, said: “Barry has sent his good wishes and hopes we can ‘kill off’ the new route.”
Protestors march against HS2 Bramley and Aston route plan
Campaigners have marched through a Rotherham village in a protest about HS2.
A change to the route was announced in July which would see the high speed service run through Aston and Bramley.
Protestors took to the streets of Bramley earlier over fears about 70 homes could be demolished.
A spokesman for HS2 said the line would “dramatically improve” journeys between the Midlands, the north of England and London.
Rotherham Council has opposed the plan and Rother Valley MP Kevin Barron said he had applied for a debate in the House of Commons about the proposal.
